After a week of pies (and I still have one more left to post), it feels like coming home to make cupcakes again.

If your home was the inside of your metal eyelids. Or a pastry bag with piping tips.

It’s like this: I can spend three hours working on a pie that in the end, dissatisfies my over-analytical mind, or I can spend one hour lazing in the kitchen and produce these.

And these are magical, my human friends: fluffy white frosting up to your nose, gooey apple pie filling, and a light and airy cinnamon cupcake.

Cupcakes have been programmed into me. Literally.

It’s good to be back.

1-1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

4. In a separate, large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until thick ribbons form, about 5 minutes. Add dry ingredients and mix until just until incorporated.

5. Add milk mixture and vanilla.

6. Divide evenly among baking tins, 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 16-18 minutes, rotating halfway through, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pans for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.?

8. Core the cupcakes and fill each hole with much apple pie filling.
